"Detective 27" as written by and Terence Michael/howse Butler....
His house he calls the batcave
He's sworn to secrecy
With comic books and videos
He lives his fantasy

Detective 27
Detective 27

In darkest depth of night
With full moon shining bright
He takes the mantle of the bat

Detective 27 at last
Detective 27
Detective 27

Shadow of the bat
Known his mind
And where it's at
A normal life will never be

For a lonely man inside a dream
Fighting for the cause of justice
Egendary in his mind
Protector of the innocent

He's waiting for his time
Detective 27
